As an adult who was sexually abused at the hands of a foster father who was also a very well known minister~ I resonated with every word that Susan wrote. For the first time I felt someone put into words what I have not been able to do and gave me a voice. I wept because it is my story and it is a book that speaks my truth. The sexual abuse weaved its shame and sometimes paralyzingly fear into every fiber of my being. It is my story but it does not have to define me. Heart2Heart Hope flowing~

A good, short read for survivors curious about what the healing process involves. Written from the author's personal perspective about the impact and effect the abuse had on her, and not so much the retelling of gory details, which I appreciated as a survivor myself. The author also shares intimately and openly about her personal triggers, symptoms, and coping skills that she's discovered on her unique journey. I found this encouraging and validating as I attempt to do the same for myself. I felt less alone, less weird, and gained confidence in my own healing journey after reading this book.

I found How To Love Yourself: The Hope After Child Abuse to be courageously written by it's author, speaker, and Child Abuse Advocate Susan Jacobi.

This is a powerful little book that not only provides enlightenment, but encouragement, and most importantly ~ hope, that a life filled with all three is not only possible, but a natural birthright to survivors of physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

Tackling a highly sensitive and difficult to talk about subject, Susan's has managed to present her story in a way that feels as though she's sitting right beside you, taking you by the hand, all the while encouraging the reader that support and resources are available.

Each chapter begins with "Let's Talk About" a particular topic. For example, Chapter 5 is titled: "Let's Talk About Triggers". In this powerful chapter (and throughout the book) she shares stories of her childhood that's created what she refers to as triggers, (emotional, sometimes physical responses associated to a memory).

She goes on to share how today she uses those triggers as a tool to empower herself on a daily, and often times moment to moment basis to ground herself and remain in the present moment once she's triggered by a past memory.

In the remaining chapters Susan speaks candidly on the topics of shame, the offenders, body and brain wiring, the need for healing and the need for healthy boundaries just to name a few.

Finally she concludes each chapter with simple, and yet powerful exercises designed to support the reader on their own path towards self discovery and healing.

Susan not only educates about the far reaches of child abuse, but she offers real life giving solutions to overcoming it. Having experienced a different kind of personal trauma, I related to many of Susan's ideas and revelations. We both understand the power of shedding and sharing those emotions. Compassion for all victims of child abuse is necessary in order to overcome and stop the progression of this dysfunctional societal problem. This read is eye opening.

Susan Jacobi speaks in plain and honest language how child abuse affects its victims all through their life. As someone who was sexually abused in childhood it has marred my life in so many ways. Like Susan I sought professional help in my 40's and alternative therapies in my 50's that finally broke the flashbacks and blocks it was for me in my relationships. Susan's voice to my heart and I felt her struggles yet her book offered hope in releasing the bonds that child abuse can hold on us throughout life. This is a small book with a big hopeful message that I read completely in one sitting on a long plane trip. I recommend this heart filled book to anyone who has suffered some form of child abuse.

I really wanted to love this and learn lots from it, but it didn't touch me. That doesn't mean that others shouldn't purchase it, we all get our messages in different ways, and it might just be perfect for some one else.

I love Susan's courageous, compassionate and practical approach to this difficult subject matter. The book is easy to read, yet packed with simple, straightforward support and next steps for those who have been touched in any way by the tragedy of abuse. The author brings a fresh perspective to the topic.

How to Love Yourself: The Hope after Child Abuse is an excellent resource written in an engaging and open way and includes both candid stories and gentle guidance. The book presents a well-rounded set of insights and first steps. Hand in hand with professional support, it provides a pathway to greater healing and hope.
